Super Easy Melt in Your Mouth Pumpkin Pie Compliments Your Thanksgiving Meal
I usually buy my pies for Thanksgiving. Recently, I found this Signature Pumpkin Pie recipe in a grocery store inspired mini cookbook that looked fairly easy (that's how I gauge whether I'm going to attempt to make something or not) and thought I'd try it BEFORE the holiday to make sure it has the deliciousness stamp of approval. I couldn't believe what my daughter said about it!She said it was the best pumpkin pie she's ever had and that the filling melted in her mouth. Made me kinda proud since I had never baked a pumpkin pie from scratch before. I think the secret ingredient is the sweetened condensed milk. I'm sharing early so you can do a practice run before Thanksgiving too.
